Cromwell Court Apartments

Recommended Posts

Three apartments in Cromwell court have cropped up at the same time, all being sold by the same EA:

It must be the same person selling at least part of their 'portfolo' - however somewhere in the back of my mind I think I might have seen these for sale somewhere before....do these ring a bell with anyone?

I did a search and found this, which seems to suggest that one of the flats in the block sold for £66K a few years back:

Just reduced from 126500

This took me to the fair. Call GO'C estate agents "08720 453037 (Calls cost 10ppm from a BT landline)" A premium rate to call an estate agent!! How sneaky.

Well spotted that chap!

So it seems no-one wanted it at £126K; the gaffitti at the bottom of the block of flats doesn't help sell it too much. I've heard that one of the streets that leads up to the block of flats can be a bit dodgy, and I suppose there could be problems with noise what with it being slap bang in the middle of the university area.

I parked on this street once, left for about 2 hours, when I got back somebody had deliberately scrapped the door of my car. Quite badly damaged too. I thought these were HE flats and am shocked at the rent charged for them.

No. 31 is a repo with an offer of £90,000 ATM. That's generous I think. £126500 is hilarious. Gerry must be funny. He used to be Gerry O'Connor Financial Services at the same address.

With a name like Cromwell you alienate 50% of the population if they changed it to a neutral Like Pamela Anderson Court it would sell for more.

I have a fair idea who owns these or more likely the wife of the fallen director who owns these.

Surprisingly large number of women with no interest in property who own in NI. :) If these don't sell would your opinion be that they could end up as repo's?

Interesting - it fits in with what I had assumed, that these flats are part of a bigger BTL portfolio owned by someone with loadsamoney.

Very much so. The lifestyle would have taken a hammering since 2007.

I'd doubt this particular portfolio consists of much more than these. Definitely not someone with loadsofmoney if I'm right.

Oh, I stand corrected then! Is this person allegedly a 'distressed' seller of sorts; i.e. they need to sell up asap for financial reasons?

I wouldn't be surprised if there were a few of those personal guarantees BVI loves so much in the background here.

I'd love to see the land registry doc for these to remove all doubt.

....aaaand now they've raised the price by £5K on some of the apartments...

Cause that's what you do when something isn't selling. Raise the price.

After they went sale agreed?

EAs love to do that especially the ones who only use Property News. The PropertyPal price history makes it all too obvious.

Of course with propertybee you can see the price rises are actually after they go sale agreed.

I can only assume it's some sort of EA marketing ploy to make it look like they sold for more than they actually did.

The price increases I saw were on flats that were still for sale. The one that stayed at £105K has now sold though, so maybe they've hiked up the others because they've managed to sell that one.

The property is subject to an Assured Shorthold Tenancy for a term of 7 months from 1st September 2010 at a current rent of

£500 p.c.m.

Guide price on the brochure is 60 - 65. Flat is tenanted - £500 pcm. Couldn't have sold in that time and been repossessed again, could it? Or is sale agreed a new code for lender won't wait any longer for a sale - auction
